Chris Evans has said that he’s not necessarily leaving Marvel, after an online post was widely interpreted as confirmation that he’ll vacate the role of Captain America.
Posting on Twitter earlier this month, the MCU star said it had been “an honour” to play the role as filming came to an end on Avengers 4.
“Officially wrapped on Avengers 4. It was an emotional day to say the least”, he wrote on Twitter.
Officially wrapped on Avengers 4. It was an emotional day to say the least. Playing this role over the last 8 years has been an honor. To everyone in front of the camera, behind the camera, and in the audience, thank you for the memories! Eternally grateful.

“Playing this role over the last 8 years has been an honour. To everyone in front of the camera, behind the camera, and in the audience, thank you for the memories! Eternally grateful.”
However, he’s now confirmed that we’re perhaps reading too much into his tweet.
Speaking at ACE Comic Con in Chicago, he said: “I should clarify that I know I did tweet something that made a lot of people think that it was in some way a spoiler.
“I should clarify that regardless of how Avengers 4 ends, I would have tweeted the exact same thing. That last day of filming was a very emotional day and it was the culmination of almost 10 years of filming and 22 movies, this unbelievable tapestry.
“You feel a lot more emotions than I think even I thought I’d feel. And I felt it was appropriate to share the gratitude. I know it had a ripple effect but I am neither confirming nor denying anything.”
